Remove Tax Language
First, your organization should not provide a tax receipt for any grants coming from Every.org. Donations are made to Every.org, and therefore we send out tax receipts. You may, however, send donors a separate thank you acknowledging their gift without the tax-deduction legalese.
Automate Your Acknowledgment
You can add a custom thank you message that goes out with Every.org's automatic receipt. As an admin for your nonprofit, you can edit this under "Profile" in your Admin Dashboard, or go directly to:
Acknowledging the Gift Amount
If you're sending out your own thank you letter and want to acknowledge the amount, here are some best practice tips. Please adapt to your organization's needs.
1. Thank donors for the full amount that was paid or donated, before processing fees. If a donor contributed $100 using a Visa credit card and $2.50 was taken out, you would ideally acknowledge them for the full amount of $100.
"Thank you for your generous gift of $100 on Every.org supporting ORGANIZATION NAME."
2. If there was a match applied, it's ideal to separate it out to make sure that the donor doesn't mistakenly think they were double charged.
"Thank you for your generous gift of $100 on Every.org supporting ORGANIZATION NAME, which also received a match of $100 for a total contribution of $200."
3. In the case of in-kind donations like crypto or stocks, Every.org sells the asset and makes grants out in the net amount. It can be complex to calculate the valuation at the contributed time along with the fee amount, so you can just recognize the net amount.
"Thank you for your generous gift of cryptocurrency on Every.org supporting ORGANIZATION NAME, which resulted in a net contribution of $98.17."
If there was a match, you can just simplify and acknowledge the total net contribution since matches can be calculated before fees. For example, a net contribution of $98.17 might be matched $98.19.
"Thank you for your generous gift of cryptocurrency on Every.org supporting ORGANIZATION NAME, which was matched and resulted in a total net contribution of $196.36."
